UND Dance Marathon is Nov. 17

The mission of the University Dance Marathon is to build hope and inspiration for the children treated at MeritCare Children’s Hospital. The goal of this event is to involve the campus and community in a worthwhile cause while giving students an opportunity for leadership and development and raising money for the hospital.

The UND Dance Marathon will be Saturday, Nov. 17, from noon until midnight in the Memorial Union Ballroom. There will be music, including both a DJ and live performers and free food throughout the day. Most importantly, children that have benefited from the MeritCare Children’s Hospital will come with their families and share their stories with everyone attending the event.

To get involved, you must register for the event. Check our Web page through student organizations for registration materials. We ask that everyone who registers raise a minimum of $20 to receive a free T-shirt! You can get together in teams or register as an individual. Every cent that you donate goes straight to the MeritCare Children’s Hospital and is tax deductible.

MeritCare is the only non-profit children’s hospital in the state of North Dakota, and one of the leading children’s hospitals in the nation. Children and their families come to the hospital from all over the state of North Dakota as well as surrounding states. Many children from the Grand Forks area have been cared for by the MeritCare Children’s Hospital.

The Children's Miracle Network is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children’s hospitals across North America. They are the national organization associated with MeritCare Children’s Hospital and UND Dance Marathon.

Faculty and staff: Come show your support and dance to give kids a chance!
